Humuhumu’s description

Tiki-Ko opened in Bakersfield in June 2016, and is owned by Roy Scarazzo and Sonya Gamargo. The interior, designed and built by Danny "Tiki Diablo" Gallardo, features vintage Witco pieces, beachcomber lamps, turquoise blue upholstery, and artwork by Tiki tOny. Future plans call for the bar to expand to include a lower level. A full slate of traditional tropical cocktails is on offer, and there is a souvenir logo coconut mug available.

Stopped in while passing through and had a delicious Mary Ann. The decor is classic: big mug collection lining the room, lots of Witco wood and well lit with the starry night lights on the ceiling. Very friendly bartenders too. They're turning the basement in to a nautical themed area. I'll have to stop by again when that's done.

A friend recommended that some of us visit Tiki-Ko when passing through Bakersfield. Boy are we glad we did. Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere, incredible standard drinks (one member of our group ordered the Painkiller and said it was the best he'd ever had), and equally good original drinks (I love their Mary Ann)! The decor was nice and the music was appropriate (no rock). I highly recommend that you visit if you are in the area. The only defect I could find is that they long ago sold out of their logo'd tiki mugs and haven't ordered more. They said they had had supplier problems, but it's something they should really find a solution for.

I love, Love, L-O-V-E this little place. Zowie! I had the best time with the friendliest staff I've ever encountered. Words can NOT describe it accurately...but I tried in a blog post (which you can read HERE if you want: https://monsterago-go.blogspot.com/2017/10/im-freaky-for-tiki-7-tiki-ko-in.html ).

Heading back for round 2 next week. Yes, it's small---but size isn't everything.
